Edmund Englich on design as a benefit for the customer

Sculptures of communication. The first television sets were carefully treated pieces of furniture. Therefore, in the early 1950s the colour of the finish was more important to the future owner than the overall design. Today, just like in the 1950s, the television is a cult object, but the requirements are completely different. Today, the design of the television set plays a decisive role. It is important for the design of a “modern” TV set to appeal to the emotions and implement innovative technologies in such a way that they harmonise with the design. The design of the Spheros R 37 Masterpiece TV set manages the difficult task of finding a form that is appropriate for its technology.

Well defined. Video is an interesting and very popular means of communication. Parallel to the evolution and development of this communications medium in the 1970s, the development of relevant storage media also advanced, with formats such as Betamax, the compact Video 8, the Hi-8 and the DV format. The current format of the DV cassette allows resolution figures, which would have been unthinkable back in the 1970s. The HDR-FX1 is the first HDV1080i-compatible digital highdefinition home video camcorder that allows recording and playback of high-definition videos on these DV cassettes.

Aesthetic crossover. Before even Audrey Hepburn and James Dean, sunglasses had long been trendsetters in the accessory industry. However, they are not merely a decorative fashion article; their importance in eye protection against direct sunlight, UV radiation and wind makes them a true performance product. The P‘8404 titanium sunglasses are designed to meet this current crossover trend.

Delicate. When the Spanish bishop and conqueror Diego de Landa ordered to burn the records on the medical knowledge of the Mayas, he did not know that he was destroying something irretrievable. The Mayas were masters of surgery and could skilfully perform highly complicated operations. Today, there are still many medical fields, in which “manual” work plays a great role. One of these fields is the resection of an enlarged prostate in urology.
